Conformance Test for IEDs Based on IEC 61850 Communication Protocol

In this paper, a conformance test platform is built for intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) from different manufacturers based on IEC 61850 communication protocol. A conformance test of time delay of message transmission between two IEDs, made by the same or different manufacturers, is performed. The conformance test platform, as well as the test results provide a helpful reference for IEC 61850 implementation.
